During the two years that they have lived in their house, homeowners in Athens, OH, started to notice structural problems in their basement were getting worse. One foundation wall was showing signs of failure in the form of various cracks, and some portions of the wall also appeared to be tilting inward.
Concerned with the home’s safety and structural integrity, as well as its future resale value, the owners wanted to be sure to address these problems right away. They found information about Ohio Basement Authority through online resources like Angie’s List, and they were eager to contact us for further assistance. They met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the problematic foundation wall. Our inspector then presented the owners with one of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.
Three Carbon Fiber supports were placed on the wall by one of our crews. These heavy-duty supports firmly adhere to the wall to hold it in its current position. These straps also protect the wall from any further cracking or bowing. The dark appearance of the supports may not be entirely aesthetically pleasing, but their low profile allows them to be concealed by paint, drywall or other basement finishing materials.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this trustworthy repair has helped them create a safer living environment.
